However, Sanders said during his postgame news conference he had mixed feelings after the triumph, describing that his personal things were stolen during the match.
"For starters, the children played extremely well," a clearly angry Sanders stated, before continuing,"But while the match was happening, somebody came in and stole every damn thing I've in the coaches' office. Credit cards, watches, pocket. Thank God I had in my bracelets."

"Whomever putting the lie out that my possessions was not stolen is LYING," Sanders composed on Twitter. "My possessions were shot from a briefcase tote in my workplace and more things were shot too from my workplace. We've recovered them because being reported. My Staff member seen the offense. #Truth"
